Submission + - Music pirates won't rush to iCloud for forgiveness (theconversation.edu.au)

An anonymous reader writes: Lots of people have suggested there’s a loophole in Apple’s new iCloud that will allow people who illegally download music to somehow “launder” their dirty music files, getting a nice clean, and legal, license to the music stored on iCloud. This argument is flawed for two main reasons.

The first has to do with how the laws of copyright work and the second is to do with why people share or download music (and movies) in the first place.
